On October 2, Beijing time, Owen’s remarks aroused heated discussion on social media. While praising Durant, he invisibly belittled James. In an interview, James praised his thick eyebrows and was also considered by the US media. It was "satisfying" in response to Owen.
On a podcast show, Irving said: “I think I’m the best choice for the last shot for every team I’ve ever played. And next season should be the first time in my career that I can make that guy (Durant) Come and do this, he can also hit that ball."
Is this really true? Data expert Kirk Goldsberry announced the hit rate at critical moments during the collaboration between James and Irving. Between the 2014-15 season and the 2016-17 season, at the critical moments of the regular season and playoffs (the time period when the last 5 minutes are within 5 points), James and Irving's performance is as follows:
James: 128 shots from 305, 42.0% from the field, 37.0% from the three-point field;
Irving: 77 of 210 shots, 36.7% from the field, and 26.6% from three-pointers.
The data is undoubtedly slap Irving in the face, and James himself also talked about a key to getting along with his thick eyebrows in the interview: "We will not be jealous of each other." -v: goalkeeper sports daily key event preview
The reporter also threw his eyebrows at the same question. Thick eyebrow's answer is almost the same. "When the trade happened, the thought of (jealous) never appeared in my mind. I would not be jealous of him, nor would he be jealous of me. I think this is also reflected on the court..." said the thick eyebrow, "obviously, when When there are two stars in the same team, the outside world will say this, but if the two stars are very selfless and full of desire for victory, just like us, everything is okay, we will do ourselves work."
Thick eyebrow then mentioned the entire Lakers. "Envy has never been a part of our team. Everyone is excited about the performance of their teammates. When a person wins an award or achievement, the teammate is always the first to come forward and congratulate."
This is the fundamental difference between the Lakers locker room and the Clippers locker room. Earlier, US media reported that some Clippers players were dissatisfied with the privileges of Card and George, and the atmosphere in the locker room was not harmonious.
